Let me remind you of what we've had in the past few years:
Everyone thought it was Duke but it was Faison in a mask, pretending to be Duke
Some people thought Anna was Anna until Lesil pulled her face off.
Everyone thought Luke was Luke but he was really Fluke...who actually WAS Luke...just with a mental disorder thinking he was Fluke
Kate thought she was Connie after stressing and although people thought they knew Connie from Kate you never could be sure
Everyone thinks Jake is Jake but he's really Jason because of a car accident and amnesia. And although a few people do know he's really Jason they aren't telling. .
Now Everyone thinks Ava is playing Denise but her DNA says she's not Ava...but she really IS Ava because no one knows about her bone marrow transplant.
|ASHES OF MY GH TEARS...|
Breakfast today will be Doublemint Gum in homage to the double-Ava/Denise/Flava story which will take up most of this blog. Because, well, it took up most of the show!
BTW...Duke's Urn up there should have been in his tartan clan colors.
|What, ain't ya nevah seen a bad wig befoah?|
Another face..another person not looking like themselves or hiding that fact.
Plastic Surgery NuFaces
and now..a crummy wig and a bone marrow transplant. PLUS a bonus "back from the dead story"! Too bad she's not pregnant with another WTD baby then I could go really insane.
|What..I AM crying, can't you tell?|
Where do I begin? First of all, don't come at me with "this is a soap" and it's hilarious. Sorry. It's not. It may have been fun eons ago before it had been done to death but now? Lame. I'm so reminded of Janet/Natalie. Like a cheap black wig would make us go: Ooooooooo it's a twin!(At least it WAS a twin in that case.) If I had a dime for every time a wig and or glasses were plopped on a head on soaps to denote a 'difference' I'd retire to somewhere warm.
I know actresses love the challenge of playing someone 'else'. Maura West will do a fine job. But why must I sit through this mess?
Is it funny she's a snappy gal from Queens? Nope.
Denise DEMOOCHIO..is that a riot? Nope
Is it funny that she just "showed up" at Julian's because she "looked like a dead broad in the paper"? Nope.
Is it funny because she chews gum? Nope
Is it funny she called Morgan dumb? Well...yes :) heh
And not for nothing...but since the entire "right to die" story was so isolated and not meaningful, maybe her waking up would have been? Are we going to see those scenes in "flashback" because it happened off camera? Where's Silas? Will that too be explained because everything happened "off camera"?
I also see no one is really that into finding out where Avery went.
|OMG..is she really?|
Yeah, she's really....
I have SO many places I need to be besides here, in this scene
Poor Alexis is not only accepting Julian's "I'm out of the mob" sheeze, she actually said yes to him representing this person! ahahaa. :Gaffaw: Poor Alexis. The only saving grace of the scene where Flava came into the apartment were the reactions of Sam and Alexis. I swear those faces were totally Kelly and Nancy going WTF is this!!??
I've had people in the past criticize me for not 'giving the story time'. I'm also trying to think of one story in the past year that panned out and was poignant and made sense. Nope. Even the Luke story went on so long and was so convoluted I had to give it a C+. Even WITH the brilliant Black and White eppy, it was just hollow. Now we are living through Jake/Jason.
Just think: By the time all that comes out, maybe this Denise Ava extravaganza will be done too.
That just exhausts me.
|Ya see, I tawt Denise everything she knows...|
I'm also bringing up the Connie/Kate mess as well. Since the personality thing was done again with Fluke--it's now sort of morphed now into the Ava story. Connie was the gum chewing brassy broad that wore animal prints! :giggle: Poor Sonny seeing Flava and being all: THIS SHIT AGAIN? Maurice can just dig out old scripts to see how he's supposed to react to this. At least he was smart and asked to see the bullet wound.
|Gorgeous, Ain't it?|
Ok, then! On to the DNA test. Lucas had it TRIPLE run..good thinking (although I would have had one done at Mercy, one sent to a lab and on at GH but...you know me, details). It wasn't Ava! BUT! It was someone in the immediate family.
Why WHO COULD IT be??? WHO??
(Who happens to know this is all going down at the PCPD at this exact movement.) She's going to say she had twins and gave one up, right?
So..the question will remain: Will anyone actually check Denise's back story? You know, her house in Queens? Make her give up some tax returns for the past 20 years? What? What will be her excuse to keep staying in Port Charles?
I know, it's a soap.
Shut up, Karen.
The rest of the show this week:
|I'll pay for dinner, you get the tip|
Ric goes to see Donna Mills. Ah, the pieces start to come together. Although what if Liz had said yes to him? If this pushes Nina/Michelle into other orbits I'm all for it. When I think about her character since she joined GH and all the times she's been totally apart from everyone else, it maddens me!
I also hope she sees "Denise" soon as well. Heh.
|Come on, BIG day ahead of grabbing donuts and skateboarding|
Why did Becky have to leave when Hayden was so deliciously naughty?
|Maybe If I loosen my tie she'll notice my manly scent|
|TJ, Buddy, I'm countin' on you to make the BLTs in my absence Sorry about College|
Jordan/Shawn/TJ: If this had been played out on screen, it may have meant something. Again, GH uses it's characters like seasoning and we only saw them a handful of times this year. Now I'm supposed to care? I said it before: Jordan and TJ have interacted so little she doesn't even seem like his mother. Shawn is leaving the show. Of course he's not turning on Sonny! These three were hardly on screen and weren't a real "Family" from the get-go so don't care. And by the way, thanks for letting the TJ/Shawn daddy secret out of the bag when HE'S NOT GOING TO BE ON ANYMORE.
|Yah... I got you an Alex and Ani BFF bracelet..'Kay?|
BRIGHT SPOTS: (Yes, I DO have them!!)
This needs 2 photos!
PS. Still wondering about the Spinelli/Ellie thing and where Georgie ended up. Is she back in Seattle with them? He still has custody right? Why can nothing be tied up on this show? Why does it take weeks to do it? Even a minor plot point like that one?
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Dr. O and Franco. I sometimes feel like Todd is going to seek advice from Vicky. Only Lesil loves her some Franco for reals.
PROP OF THE WEEK: Dead Egg Salad Sandwich. "Self-Portrait"..."You should hang yourself in a gallery"!
FACES OF THE WEEK: These two say it all for me.
RUNNER UP: Fine acting right here--I'm serious. I felt all the feels. Just sad they didn't have more airtime when it counted. All three in this story are good actors as well. Could have been a really compelling core story.
I've given my story ideas in the past-- so I'm not going to bore you with that right now. I suppose Tony's exit from the show will be interesting. Rumors that Ethan/Lucky might come back intrigue me. Genie's on next week. Tony's back too.
June is very busy for me-- LOL This should have happened May sweeps. I was going to skip for awhile but probably shouldn't now that this is all happening. Must bookend my GH years.
|Ric, did you bring me the Sephora Eye Pencil I requested?|
Kudos to the cast this week, they all brought it--no matter what the story was-- because that's how they roll.
June is hella busy for me. So, we'll see if I can manage!!
Have a great day...
